On Wednesday, Paris Saint-Germain’s sports director Leonardo held a press conference to discuss the future of Killian Mbabane. Not surprisingly, he said he would agree to leave the Frenchman this summer alone for a fee of at least 220 million euros (.3 188.3 million).
The 22-year-old has made it clear that he is not interested in extending his contract with PSG, and is believed to be aiming to join Los Blancos. The Spanish giants are waiting for the right opportunity to jump, and it is reported that they have put an offer of 160 million euros on the table earlier this week.
However, according to Brand, Leonardo raised an eyebrow at the offer. “We don’t think the bid is enough. I’m not confirming the figures, but it’s about 160 million. [euros], “he said.” This is less than what we paid for it. [180m euros plus add-ons], But it’s more than that. This has been done, [it has been] Disrespectful, “he added, referring to the last-minute nature of the bid.
He then said that if Mbappe wanted to leave, he would have to do so under the club’s terms. Leonardo has indicated that he is still committed to keeping the player this season, as well as being at the center of his plans.
“We are not going to change the plan. Killian is the center of the plan, but he is not beyond that. But if he stays or goes, it will always be on our terms. If he wants to go, he will go. , But like any other player on our terms.
Leonardo then accused Real Madrid of illegally contacting the player in order to press him against renewing his contract with PSG.
“I think this is Real Madrid’s strategy for me, one of our players. For two years now, Madrid has been behaving in a way that is not right, it is illegal, it is contacting its delegation. [it’s] Unacceptable, not right on our side, “he said.
Leonardo confirmed that the offer had been turned down, and that the La Liga giants had not responded. He then vowed to keep the French forward. “We never wanted them to leave, nor did we imagine it, and we’ve made a great offer and a second is better to renew it.”
With just 12 months left on his contract, MBAP will be able to move on to a free transfer next season if no agreement is reached by August 31. To avoid major losses by allowing the player to go free.
“Mbappe has always promised that he will never leave the club for free. We will see in a year.”
